The Crazy, Mixed-Up (and Deadly) Worldview of Our Very Own Local Khomeinist, Z. Bangash

If anyone other than Zafar Bangash had written this piece which contends that the U.S. and the "Zionist entity" are the bad guys in the Middle East while Iran--Iran!--is "the silver lining" in the region (in other words, getting everything all wrong and arse backwards), you might well wonder about his grip on reality. But knowing Zafar as we do--as the unfriendly local Khomeinist who can summon up thousands of angry Zion-loathers, wearing their colourful homeland garb, to seethe and rage at Queen's Park on the Ayatollah Khomeini's annual Hate Israel Day (a.k.a. Al Quds Day)--it is clear that the man is not insane. What he is is a religious zealot and Khomeini's biggest fanboy.

You might bear that in mind as you read this:
The Muslim world is beset by numerous problems and some countries may even undergo further disintegration but the silver lining is the Islamic Republic of Iran. The resistance front is getting stronger. This should give hope to oppressed Muslims everywhere.

Those opposed to imperialist and Zionist manipulation and interference in Syria may feel that the failure to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Asad is cause for celebration. It is not the time for applause yet. Syria as a country has been virtually destroyed; millions of people have been displaced from their homes and turned into refugees, both internally and externally. For all practical purposes, Syria as a member of the resistance front against Zionist aggression has been badly damaged and lies incapacitated.

This was the intended purpose of the foreign conspirators and their regional and local proxies all along. The neocon agenda that was set out soon after 9/11 as revealed by General Wesley Clark in his Democracy Now interview on March 7, 2007, is on track. He listed seven countries the neocons wanted to attack: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and finishing off with Iran. Of these Iraq, Somalia and Libya have already been destroyed, the latter two smashed beyond recognition; Sudan has been divided while Syria is still being destroyed causing more than $100 billion in infrastructure damage. Only Islamic Iran has withstood the grand conspiracy, thanks to the sagacity of its leadership, the Islamic system of governance and support of the Iranian people. Lebanon, or more precisely, Hizbullah has been embroiled in the Syrian conflict and its energies diverted from resisting Zionist aggression although it is capable of fighting on multiple fronts.

There are other trouble spots in the Muslim world. As a result of US military aggression, Afghanistan has been smashed beyond the Stone Age while neighboring Pakistan’s social and political fabrics lie in ruin. Uncle Sam’s friendship has proved extremely costly for the people of Pakistan even if the country’s elite have benefitted from America’s handouts. The Pakistani military has been engulfed in fighting its own people, the consequences of which will be extremely damaging for the country’s future.

The destabilization game has continued apace elsewhere as well. Yemen is in turmoil; a democratically elected government in Egypt was overthrown by the military perpetrating a horrible massacre of thousands of innocent people. America’s regional puppets — Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE and Turkey — have been used to undermine neighboring countries including Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Yemen. With Muslims engulfed in their own problems, the Zionist occupiers of Palestine were able to unleash their massive fire on the defenceless people of Gaza leaving the besieged enclave in even greater ruin and its people further traumatized than before...    
The reality, of course, is markedly different, and was outlined by Netanyahu in today's speech. Which is to say that Iran now has an iron grip on four--count 'em, four--Arab capitals: Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and, the latest addition, Sanaa, Yemen.

There is no doubt that the Islamic Republic is making great strides in its push toward global hegemony, which, along with its determination to obliterate more that six million Jews (and others) in Israel, makes it the Nazis of our time.

Gee, what do you suppose that makes Zafar?
